Shellac Rockstar Fingers & Toes

I have recently been having a go at the Shellac Rockstar nails, my friend visited me at The Ezina Sanctuary in Witney and she choose to have multiple colours!! See Pic!

Also loving the Shellac Rockstar Toes!!

Day 14 of wearing Shellac

Sorry have been so busy lately at The Ezina Sanctuary Beauty Salon in Witney havent had time to blog!! I did however get to my 14th day of wearing Shellac with no peeling or chipping and I have taken pictures!! I have also taken pictures of my nails after having removed the Shellac to show no damage has been done to the nail plate!! You can see a bit of white on the skin which is from the acetone (removal of Shellac involves wrapping fingers with foil wraps with acetone) this will dehydrate your nail briefly but after removing Shellac I rubbed in some of the amazing CND Solar Oil and nails back to normal.

I cannot live without Shellac, I love it and I then went on to re-apply using Rock Royalty layering with Decadence!! Gorgeous.

UV Rays Exposure when having a Shellac Manicure

Today I had a client visit me at my beauty salon, The Ezina Sanctuary in Witney who was concerned about the UV Rays from the CND lamp and whether they were harmful, I know my ambassador of CND had told me that the lamps are harmless and that you would expose yourself more by being outside for 5minutes than you would using the lamp!! She seemed fine about it but after she left I thought I would research it further.

I did find a very interesting article which at first when reading it concerned me slightly, but I then read further at the comments underneath especially the one by Doug Schoon (an internationally-recognized scientist, author and educator with over 30 years experience in the cosmetic, beauty and personal care industry) and CND and realised  Charmaine Gillespie had not properly looked into it before posting her comment.

Also thank you Doug Schoon for pointing out the facts not the speculation.

Day 4 Wearing Shellac

Well its day 4 wearing Shellac, still no chips or peeling just perfect like day 1, I have been doing the usual, cleaning, washing up, tidying and cooking. Afterall when you have a 14 year old and a 10 year old, your work is never done. I also had a client in yesterday for a facial which was good as had to handle creams and oils!! I have got 3 clients booked in for CND Shellac at The Ezina Sanctuary in Witney over the next 3 days and as I have to scrub fresh their nails (which contains acetone) they are may peel off a bit. I will be back on Sunday and see how I have got on! It will be 8 days by then.
